The Llama song!!!

I realize some of you have seen it... but wow. I just... wow. :)

At a meeting of the Physical Society of Vienna on December 4, 1894, a five-and-a-half-year-old girl was exhibited who weighted 250 pounds. She subsisted on a normal diet and was otherwise in good health. The only unusual feature of the girl’s physiology was that she never perspired.

Yeah, my Great-Grandma was pretty famous back then. After they sold her to the freak show they called her "Big Baby Sausage Cake Can't Sweat". Apparently it sounds better in German: "Großer Säuglingswurstkuchen kann nicht schwitzen".

Of course she never made any real money at the show until years later when her beard grew in.
